Installation Guide - Vinyl & Composite Stick on Tiles
Installation is simple, easy and perfect for DIY lovers. No need for a Tiler, grout or any expensive tile cutting tools. Just follow the installation guide and enjoy that new designer tile look in no time.
Things you will need:
- Cutting Surface (thick cardboard or scrap piece of wood)
- Stanley Knife (use a fresh blade) or Scissors
- Cleaning Agent (sugar soap or dish washing liquid)
- Cleaning Cloth
- Bucket of Warm Water
- Fine Sandpaper (if installing tiles on painted wall)
Please note: We do not recommend you install the tiles close to any open flames or stove tops. Allow at least 20 to 30cm of distance between a stove top, to ensure tiles do not melt or catch fire.
Step 1 - Clean the Surface
To ensure the tile adhesive
sticks to your projects surface wipe the area clean with a gentle cleaning agent to remove any dirt, dust or debris. Wait for the area to be touch dry before proceeding to the next step.
Step 2 - Measure
Measure your space to confirm
you have the right number of sheets for your project. This is the step where you can play around with the placement and direction of your tile.
Step 3 - Cut First Tile Sheet
This is where those extra
sheets come in handy, measure twice cut once! It's always best to start with a straight line closest to the corner of the wall and work to the opposite side for a clean and consistent look.
Step 4 - Remove Adhesive Film
Gently peel back the film and place the tile sheet on the wall. Ensure you align the bottom and side of the sheet into corners for a clean line. Once applied use your hand to firmly press sheet onto the wall for optimum adhering.
Step 5 - Align Second Tile
Continue applying each tile sheet matching the pattern you've chosen with the grout lines for a seamless finish. Keep any off cuts for the end of the project to fill gaps or smaller spaces.
Step 6 - Finish Tiling Wall
For an even more pristine finish apply an all purpose silicone to match the grout colour on all the edges. Then stand back and admire your work. Don't forget to take plenty of photos and share!
